MAC Unsung Heroes: C-Thru Lipglass

Published in: Lips, MAC Makeup, Unsung Heroes

Okay, so maybe C-Thru isn’t going to win a flashy dance-off with MAC’s louder Lipglasses, but ya know, for some reason, it always keeps me coming back for more.


Why? Because it just works. Whenever I want a little sparkle and shine, BAM! There’s C-Thru. Whenever I want a gloss to give my lips some warmth and shimmer, KAPOW! Hi, C-Thru.

A shimmery, sheer peachy beige/nude, C-Thru goes with just about everything, and I think it’s great for a toned down lip look.

It’s one of my favorite lippies to wear with smokey eyes, usually layered with nude liners like MAC Spice or Subculture. I can totally see Angeline Jolie busting this out every once in a while. It’s simple, neutral, and it goes with almost everything.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

  1. C-Thru Lipglass is one of my all-time favorite MAC products. It always makes its way onto my shopping list. I also like pairing this with MAC’s Stripdown pencil. My ultimate, favorite nude lip!

  3. Becca says:

    This gloss looks AMAZING with the rest of your look. Love it!!! And again with the Dune…I am so needing this in my life right now. I just got Suede a few days ago and fully plan on returning ASAP for Dune

  4. Nina says:

    This is awesome on you! 🙂 And I agree, it is an Unsung Hero. I passed it by so many times and then discovered it one afternoon while I was browsing at the MAC store. LOVE!

  5. Kim says:

    I love this look on you – very sassy, yet still kind of neutral. If that makes sense. 🙂

  6. Chris25 says:

    I always pass this up at the store, because it looks so sheer and dupable. Boy, was I wrong!

  7. Beverly Johnson says:

    I keep this in my arsenal at all times….indispensable!

  10. LauraA says:

    C-Thru is my favorite lip glass of all time, and goes with literally everything. Glad to see it getting love.

  11. I don’t know how you got it to look good on you. When I wear C-Thru or Underage, it looks like I put a layer of Elmer’s Glue on my lips 🙁

      Hi Ines,

      Hmm, have you tried wearing it with a neutral lip liner? Something like Subculture might take away the Elmer’s Glue look.

  12. Rola says:

    I would love to check this out and try it with Subculture. Subculture is one of my all time favorite MAC lip liners. Great tip!
